A message saying “Eid Mubarak” was displayed on New York Times Square’s biggest billboard, which went live on September 1 on the landmark NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square as Muslims in the USA and around the world celebrated Eid al-Adha.

The billboard was sponsored by Wahed Invest, a shariah-compliant investment platform who partnered up with the New York branch of leading Muslim civil rights organisation CAIR.

The company’s CEO Junaid Wahedna said, “We really felt we should spread the positivity and love of the Eid festivities with the world, especially after all the negativity tied to Muslims in the US and worldwide.”
